Federal Judge Restrains Center For Medical Progress From Further Video Distribution

Federal Judge Restrains Center For Medical Progress From Further Video Distribution

It looks like David Daleiden and his ilk have more legal woes on their hands.

This afternoon, U.S. Judge William Orrick issued a restraining order prohibiting the distribution of Daleiden's falsely-edited videos at a National Abortion Federation event until all litigation is over, reports KDAL.

As an added bonus, he found no evidence of criminal activity by NAF members. He didn't say the same of CMP and Daleiden, however, choosing to remain silent until the lawsuits are completed.

California is a two-party state, meaning that conversations in private venues cannot be recorded without the consent of both parties being recorded. The NAF convention was not a public event, but a private one with very high security bars which had to be cleared for CMP to be admitted. They used false IDs and a shell corporation to accomplish that.
